    I'm not actually a trombone player.... However, my fiancé is an insanely talented bass trombone player. He's been playing well over a decade and received his degree at UTA in Texas and now holds his Masters degree through the University of Michigan! Go Blue!!

    Anyway! Since I'm not as familiar as I'd like to be when it comes to knowing of great, iconic bass trombone or low brass musicians I was wondering if anyone could supply me with some ideas! He also loves the Chicago Symphony and Joe Alessi. But he also enjoys a lot of brass jazz music. Maybe NOLA styles? And Harry Comick Jr is also included in his eclectic variety of music.
    I just want to surprise him with some CDs, possible concerts, and show him how much I really do love his career and hopefully impress him with some new materials he may not be as familiar with or if he is familiar with it then it will give us a chance to experience it together!!

    A couple names of musicians, bands or even songs would make me so grateful!!

    "I Only Have Eyes For You" by Harry Warren/ Al Dubin arr: Alan Fernie. Published by Obrasso-Verlag AG, CH-4537 WIEDLISBACH, Switzerland. Should be a good start songwise.

    There were some recordings by a group of trombone players who went by the name Trombones Unlimted. The recordings have now been transferred to CD format. I certainly have enjoyed them.
    Additionally the Salvation Army had several CD s made by a group called Spiritual to the Bone. Some great playing and great arrangements including some by Stephen Bulls, B Brought on.
    Some nice playing by some individualists
    Just my thoughts

    NB There is more than one Dave Taylor in the world! Even in the world of bass trombone... I am not advertising myself in this post!

    Recordings featuring legendary NYC player Dave Taylor. I prefer those from before about 1990, when he changed instrument. Mingus big band, for example.
